Dec 09 2015


Hertz, one of the world's largest general use car rental brands, was recognised as the ‘Best Car Rental Company in the World’ by two top travel industry awards – Global Traveler (GT) Tested Reader Survey Awards and Business Traveller magazine's 2015 Best in Business Travel Awards.

"We are extremely honoured and appreciative that readers of Global Traveler and Business Traveller – some of our most loyal customers who have chosen to recognise us as the best," said Matt Jauchius, Executive Vice President and CEO, Hertz. "These awards are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our 30,000-plus employees around the world who strive to deliver the Hertz promise of excellence every day."

GT Tested Reader Survey awards

Global Traveler named Hertz ‘Best Car Rental Company’ in the 12th GT Tested Reader Survey awards, ranked among the most highly regarded awards in the industry, which asks frequent business and luxury travellers to name the best in a variety of travel-related categories. The survey honours airlines, hotels, loyalty programs and travel-related products in more than 80 categories. GT's distinguished readers vote for their favourites in the world of travel in an open-ended survey running in the magazine and online from January to August each year.

"Our readers know the best of the best in the business, as they are travelling daily, flying these very airlines and staying at all of these hotels," said Francis X Gallagher, Publisher and CEO, Global Traveler.

Best in Business Travel Awards

Business Traveller magazine's 2015 Best in Business Travel Awards named the travel industry's top providers of services and products. Hertz was named ‘Best Car Rental Company in the World’ and winners were chosen by the magazine's readers in the 27th Annual Best in Business Travel survey. This year, readers selected the best in 48 different categories, ranging from airlines, hotel companies and car rentals, both by regions and worldwide.

"When business travellers speak, our industry listens," said Dan Booth, Editorial Director of Business Traveller magazine. "To be voted the Best in Business Travel by our readers means you have met and exceeded the highest expectations of your most experienced and demanding customers."
